Rush Propst is asked about the Scott Cochran move and, in the end, it comes out about like you’d expect.
Propst: “Does it hurt Alabama? I don’t know yet. I’m torn on that and I’m going to tell you why. As good as Scott is and as good as what he has done for 13 seasons sometimes strength coaches play out. It is the same old message. The same song and dance. Sometimes it gets stale and old. Stale and old. Even in my program. It seems like I changed up my strength coach at my program and it paid off. He was the best I’ve ever been around. I think the best I’ve ever seen, including Scott Cochran. This guy is really good. He was with me at Hoover and came with me to Georgia. But he left after the 13th season and I changed it up and gave it then to another guy that had trained under him. He did change it up some and we won our first state championship in Georgia.”
“I think the best I’ve ever seen, including Scott Cochran.” LOL. Makes you wonder why Saban’s settling for the pair from Indiana.
